I don't hear the word panza much--other than Quixote's sidekick.
The word I hear to refer to tummy (especially a big one) is barriga.

Not sure if this is correct, but I relate tummy = panza; belly = barriga. But they are kind of interchangeable.

OK.

Although in Chile we use "Güata". The Castelian word is "Estómago", The word in English is "Stomach"

Now: barriga, panza are words that are used colloquially.

I guess in English would be the same. Belly, Tummy etc...

The words are accepted but they should translate literally to Estómago and Stomach. Unless speaking colloquially.
